The Tyler County Sheriff's Office has pulled 2,096 marijuana plants after hunters stumbled upon them in a southwest portion of the county.
A Sheriff's Office spokesperson said the plants were found on land in a hunting lease around 3 p.m. Saturday.
A deputy staked out the area overnight in case workers returned to the crop but say no one showed up. Sunday morning sheriff's deputies pulled up the plants.
The spokesperson said there were hundreds of yards of irrigation lines at the camp site and an underground pump that was hidden from fly over checks by helicopter.
No arrests have been made, but the spokesperson said deputies recovered valuable evidence from the site.
